    Hip Hop Slang

    Can anyone explain the meaning of triple beam and fish scale?? I hear these terminologies often but don't know the meaning. Are there any words you all always hear but don't know the meaning of?

    They are both scales...one is called triple beam because it has three beams that you have to balance to have the correct weight, one beam is ones, one tens and one hundreds. If your hearing it used in rap it is refering to COCAINE (which is a narcotic) and the main ingredient to make CRACK which is what most of these rappers have claimed to hustle... You can use the a triple beam in a variety of ways, in the states they actually teach you how to use them in school at a young age and in my high school they would always get stolen figure out why...

    Fish scale is used to weigh larger quantities such as KEYS (a term you may also hear and not understand it means kilo of cocaine)...

    Wow, so you must have a hard time listening to a guy like Jeezy's album.
